Author Biography

Aarti Patel is a naturopathic doctor and author who enjoys writing about health, as well as fiction that explores individuality and society's impact on health. She lives in the Pacific Northwest with her family and finds rainy days to be perfect for writing and watching movie marathons. She believes that health is not about perfect diets, hours spent at the gym, a magic cure from supplements or pharmaceuticals, or any one particular belief or ideology. Rather, it's life itself, how we treat it and support it, and the courageous actions of the individual in the face of real life challenges.

Acne is a word that carries a lot of weight in our lives. In Acne: Just Another Four-Letter Word by Aarti Patel, N.D., the author speaks about dealing with acne and fixing the skin. The purpose of this book is to face the four-letter bully so that there is no more running and hiding from anything in life that is feeding the acne. A lot of fuss is made when it comes to acne and this book will help make acne's role smaller in your life by giving you the power to stand up to it and heal your skin from within you. That makes all the benefits long-lasting, unlike the creams, capsules, and special diets you follow.

The author's personal experiences when it comes to dealing with acne, and her experience as a naturopathic doctor, make the suggestions and tips credible and it will be easy for readers to relate to what the author is trying to convey. Patel handles the topic methodically and in detail, covering all aspects that can make the bully, as she terms it, strip us of our self confidence. The skin is a living, breathing, and sensing surface and the book describes how to treat it well. The author connects acne with the body and mind, and the steps mentioned are based on how to handle the emotional upheavals that bring out negative emotions and manifest on the skin as acne. All those readers who are trying to tackle their acne, start writing the goodbye letter to your acne and begin the process of letting go.
